Hello everyone!  I just spoke with my sailor and she was informed this evening that she had to have an overseas screening done.  No big deal, however, she's a reservist and is due to complete A school the end of March.  She didn't receive any orders or further information as to why she has to have this screening done.  Would anyone here be able to provide some insight on this type of situation and explain why she would have to go through this?  Any information that is provided is greatly appreciated!

I have not heard of the 21 age requirement.  It may be new.

Last I  knew,  the sailor has to submit a chit for anyone else to be a liberty buddy.  I looked at what TSC has posted, and they do not specify.  He should check with his specific COC and see what they currently require,  policies if anyone messed up recently.

Do yall know the rules on who exactly gets to check their sailor out during Phase 2? Like can only parents, guardians, and spouses check them out or can girlfriends/fiances too as long as they're over 18? And also, either way, do you have to be 21 regardless?

Hi my SR is in GL A School I just filed her taxes and had it go to her Navy Federal

Yes, there are tax preparers to help the sailors on every base.

I am guessing I am to send my son's w2 to him at A school?  He said he was told to have them sent there and someone on base will help...just want to be sure before I send it off to him.

My son has a car on base in San Diego.
Comment by Navy Nates Mom on February 4, 2015 at 8:22am

does anyone know if you are living on base at San Diego if they are allowed to have a car on base?
